Long Lake Reviews

I live in Ingleside. The scenery is beautiful around my home. There is a forest preserve and bike trail just down the street. There is also a lake about a ten minute walk away. There are a lot of summer homes around the lake, so it's lonelier in the fall and winter. I love living here, it just gets way too cold way too fast. Rollins road is the main road that I live off of. That road has recently gone under a lot of construction with new businesses everywhere. I see this area becoming much more urbanized. Which is sad, I enjoy my lonely, beautiful, cozy, wooded area,
